Via Glenn Reynolds, we learn more about “the new climate of fear in America: DEM DONOR Arrested for Threatening to Murder GOP Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite …Media Silent“: “Erik Pidrman threatened to murder GOP Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite.”
Mr. Pidman, “gave $250 to Hillary’s campaign in 2008.”
Barney, you’ve got some differentiating to do. I do expect the unhappy Massachusetts Democrat to take to the microphones any minute now to “differentiate” himself from the hateful threats made by this supporter of his party. Should Barney remain silent, we will assume, based on his very words, that he countenances the types of threats the Florida Democrat made.
Barney had said that, “If this [i.e. Tea Party] was a movement that I was part of, I’d be doing more than I think the Republicans are, to differentiate myself“. Well, Tea Party protesters didn’t issue the kinds of threats Mr. Pidman did. And Barney said he would have differentiated himself from the kind of hateful language he claimed he heard last month. So, we’re waiting for him to weigh in on this matter.
